Winners of the Shimmer Program’s Worldcon Attending Fund for Chinese Fans for Worldcon 77 in Dublin, Ireland have been announced.
Hu Yue (Constance Hu) and Chen Xuchang (Amelia Chen) will each get the support of RMB 10,000 for attending and staffing the con. They are expected to gain experience in the Worldcon organizational work and help with future Chinese bids.
The fund is available only to Chinese citizens who live in mainland China. The judges for the program were Adam Beaton, Tammy Coxen, and Colin Zhang. For more information, see the Shimmer Program’s announcement on Facebook.
The Shimmer Program is funded by Storycom, “the first professional story commercialization agency in China.”
